Jackie Chan's son jailed 6 months by Chinese court for drugs offence

9 January 2015 / 1 year 9 months ago

Jackie Chan's son Jaycee Chan pleaded guilty to a charge of providing a shelter for others to use drugs on Friday, January 9 at Beijing Dongcheng District People's court.

He was sentenced to six months in prison and fined 2,000 yuan, reported AcesShowbiz.

Jaycee, who was detained at his home in Beijing in August 2014 along with Taiwanese actor Kai Ko, told the court that he didn't know what police wanted when they came to his house.

"I didn't know what [police] wanted. I just gave them information and I confessed because I didn't know how to deal with the marijuana, and I just wanted to hand over [marijuana] to the country."

He added: 

"I broke the law and I should be punished. However, even if I get due punishment, it doesn't necessarily mean I will get forgiveness."

According to South China Morning Post, Jackie and his wife Lin Feng-Jiao previously said that they would not attend Jaycee's hearing.

Back in December, Jackie said he felt ashamed after his son was indicted on drug charge.

The "Rush Hour 3" actor said, "I hope that in the future, [my son] could become an anti-drug spokesman and tell his experiences to young people," adding that he never used his connection to get his son out.
